We came for dinner and got a show with a brand new guitar player. Can't remember his name, but he was okay. I did not expect to hear that he made the big time. He sang a song he wrote and I give him kudos for getting up on stage in front of lots of strangers and trying out his... More

I wish the website was more informative about the open mic Monday Nights. You will likely need to get there an hour before the doors open to get in. About 15 minutes beforehand the security folks will tell people coming in a cab that they should turn around. Also said to get there by 8 for the 9:30 show. I'm... More

We were able to get reservations online. I highly suggest reservations or you could be stuck waiting outside in a line. Small intimate place but always has a great show. Service was great, we had the nachos and they were good.

My wife and I went along one night without booking (it was sold out)and hoped on the off chance we'd get in. We arrived just after 8.30 for the 9pm show and there was already a line of about 15 in front of us who didn't have reservations but we got in no problem. There's a $12 cover charge and... More

I went to the Bluebird with some friends earlier this month and had a great time! I made our reservation the day after they started the new reservation system and did not have any problems at all. We sat at table 17 (which is actually on the stage) and was able to see everything. We went to a Wednesday night... More

We were able to snag tickets in pew three for the 9pm show. It was a night to remember! The show we attended happened to be a benefit concert for a songwriting with soldiers program. We were lucky enough to see two of the premier song writers of today's country music, Ashley Gorley and Chris DeStefano. The show was incredible!... More

Worst place in Nashville!!! The hostess was so nasty. Treated customers like worthless pieces of dirt. It's too bad that such a unhappy, unfriendly, rude person is working in a nice city like Nashville. Communication with staff at the Bluebird was impossible. Left the Bluebird and went to the Listening Room Cafe instead. We were welcomed immediately by the kind... More

The Bluebird is a must visit locale when in Nashville. We went one night for an "in the round" show - we were sitting so close we could have reached out and touched the musicians. The whole experience was a lot of fun. Be advised: the shows sell out really quickly. As in within five minutes quickly. The tickets go... More

We did not know and it wasn't clear from the website but you should really have advance reservations to this place which is tiny. Rese not required per se but if you chance it like we did you probably won't get a seat. :(

One of the members of our group liked the TV show Nashville and wanted to see the cafe. We had tried to get tickets for a night show but failed, so we took a chance on a Sunday 6 to 7 show. We arrived at the strip mall where the cafe is located at 4:40 and there was already a... More
